Veteran Educational Benefits
Delta College has one of the largest veteran student populations in the area and wants you to take advantage of your veteran's benefits. We have an extensive history of serving veterans and can provide academic training that will assist you in entering the civilian workforce.
Use the Student Guide Checklist (PDF) to guide you through the process of admitting, registering and applying for education benefits under the GI Bill here at Delta College. The most current GI Bill information is available at the GI Bill website.
Applying for Benefits
Applying for GI Bill Benefits - Fill out an online application using VONAPP (Veteran Online Application). Print a copy for your Delta College file. Attach a copy of your DD-214 Member-4, and a copy of a voided check if you are interested in direct deposit. In addition, submit to Delta’s Veteran Services Office a VA Educational Benefits Certification Request (PDF) form to request VA certification.
Approximately 8-12 weeks after you apply for benefits the VA will send a certificate of eligibility to you; bring it into the Veteran Services Office at Delta. For questions about the status of your application or payments call the VA at 1-800-442-4551.
